Review: Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge in 1 Dreaming Pink (이니스프리 비비드 틴트 루즈 1 꿈 꾸는 핑크)

See? I told you I will have another post up this weekend! If you haven't followed my new personal Twitter, you should here (@hiyoonyee). I update about my blogging progresses there, along with small anecdotes that you may or may not find interesting.

Today I will be bringing you a review on the new Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge in 01 which came from my W2BEAUTY haul! There aren't a lot of reviews on this shade yet so I have taken the liberty in making one that I hope will help you in deciding whether to make the purchase or not.

The other Innisfree lip product that I purchased was the Innisfree Creamy Tint Lipstick!



What is it?
A new gel lip tint that maintains its glossy finish through out the day! It has a three-in-one concept: a lip gloss, a lip tint and a lip stick. It's supposed to mimic the glossy-ness of a lip gloss and have the vivid colour of a lipstick with the durability of a lip tint.

Innisfree released this product just recently and it has been selling fast! The lovely Yoona from SNSD endorses Innisfree.

The Innisfree Creamy Vivid Tint lipstick is also part of the same range and has the same corresponding shades. I purchased the lipstick in #04 from W2BEAUTY as well.




Packaging:


This is my first Innisfree purchase and I couldn't be more happy... Maybe if I bought more I would be. But I love how sleek the packaging is. The tube measures 8.5cm by 1.8cm, just a little bigger than Etude House's Fresh Cherry tint. It makes the perfect accompaniment in your purse or school bag.

The strip down the side of the bottle allows you to see the shade inside. In real life, it is a very accurate representation of the colour but the sun was setting down and my camera managed to make it look more red from the tube than it actually is.


You open the tint but twisting the top half of the bottle and out comes the standard applicator. There is a stopper in the bottle which can prohibit any excess product and from it spilling out in your bag. The side of the bottle gets dirty very easily, as you can see in the picture.

The applicator picks up a lot more product than I usually use on a day to day basis (because it is very bright), so I usually dot it along each lip three times than blend it out.



Texture:

I find it a very interesting gel/cream consistency. It allow the glossy finish of the product and it is possibly my favourite texture. It doesn't leave a nasty stain that is possible from gels, as seen in Etude House's Dear Darling tint, but it spreads believably well. The application is even, yay for non-patchy lips!

Colour:

Funnily enough, the 02 shade is supposed to be a fuschia colour but I find 01 Dreaming Pink to be of that as well. A hot pink and fuschia combination. The two photos down the bottom are accurate representations.

It can look shocking the first time you see it, but it is a lot more wearable on the lips. The colour is perfect for spring.




Product:

 If I had a disposable income, this product would be high on the list as a "must buy again". This is possibly one of my favourite lip tints due to it's three-in-one product innovation. I love glossy finishes compared to matte, and vivid colour that lasts a long time. But with that being said, the glossy texture feels slightly sticky so that might cause discomfort for people who do not like that. I find that it does a very good job in promoting a healthy moisturised look for my lips, hence my preference for glossy lips. I did not find that it accentuated my dry lines or leave any unpleasant feeling on the lips. It's very comfortable due to the camellia oil.

It's very hard to describe the smell. I find it slightly unnaturally sweet, but not unpleasant in any way. It doesn't taste like anything... Yes I have a habit of licking my lips.

One interesting thing that I really like about this product is that it does not leave an unbearably hard stain to remove on your fingers! I hate it when I have to rush out the door for school with tinted fingers but this one can be easily wiped off. Thank you Innisfree!

After 7 hours, the product leaves a slight stain but wears from the outside. Check below in "Results" for photos. I would say the colour can last vividly for 4 hours with eating, drinking and talking

With most tint products, the colour changes depending on how long you let the stain "sit" on your lips before blending it out. Here I'm showing how different the shades can become.



Results:


The camera was unable to capture the true colour of the 'light' application. It is definitely a lot brighter in real life, especially when you fully apply it.

After a whole school day with eating, drinking and talking, the light application fades from the outside, leaving slight stain in the middle of your lips. Hard to say if it wears prettily, you decide.


Due to its' glossy finish, transfer is inevitable. But the tint is still vivid on the lips, so do not worry.
